Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Hmmmm.... I can't remember now if I knew about the cheap CD places when I made my purchase. But, if I did, then, like I said, it was basically an impulse buy and I just grabbed it when the opportunity presented itself before I decided to get it online. As I recall I was thinking about getting slackware, then when it was there in front of me, I got it.
And, like Joey repeated , to support the linux community (developers).
Of course, looking back, I should have gone for it cheaper online, since I haven't had a paying job since July 2001!!
